When playing with teams, you can have a group of people all working together to complete missions! Teams get a team name and team photo, which will be displayed in the Activity Feed and Leaderboard. When one person from a team completes a mission, it shows as complete for all the members of the team, and points will be added for the whole team!
To join a team, each player must join from their own account by searching for the game and then selecting which team they'd like to join. Game organizers have the option of pre-creating teams for their game, or giving participants the opportunity to create their own teams from the app. This can be specified via the Teams tab in the Game Manager. Teams can also have access codes added to them, to ensure that players are only able to join teams they are supposed to be a part of. Playing with teams is a great way to have lots of fun with groups of people, while encouraging teamwork and exciting competition!
When playing with individuals, each person has the opportunity to submit an answer for each mission, earning their own points for their answers. Individuals will all play with their own usernames, which is what will show up on the leaderboard. They can also choose their own photo for their account, which will show up next to their username! When joining a game, individual players will be prompted to give the game password if applicable, and then will be able to start completing all of the listed missions from their own smartphone. Playing with individuals is a great way for each person to see their own progress, and for all players to have equal levels of participation!
